Another week gone by, and another Bronco up for an award.
D.J. Williams has been nominated for the GMC Sierra Defense Player of the Week for Week 3.
Williams posted a game-high 16 tackles in the Broncos’ 34-32 win against the New Orleans Saints, but it was one tackle that may be remembered above all the rest. With New Orleans driving, it was Williams who tackled Saints running back Pierre Thomas for a loss of a yard on third-and-1 from the Denver 24-yard line. That set up a 43-yard field goal attempt by Martin Gramatica that sailed wide right and helped seal the Denver win.
Voting ends Thursday at 2:00 p.m. MDT. You can vote for Williams here.
